flip flops are usually my footwear of choice, however as the seasons change and the days (and nights!) get cooler, a girl can’t always get by with just a pair of beach sandals. boot and shoes are kind of a must even in california winters, so i like to support my favorite shoes with some stylish socks! there are so many great resources for cute socks these days — from one of my very favorites, hansel from basel, to happy socks and for extra sassy socks that speak your inner thoughts and say the quietest things out loud, i just love blue q. so, without further ado, here’s some seasonal sock inspiration!

an inspiring indoor picnic with ingredients ldn. / sfgirlbybay

ingredients ldn is an inspiring online homewares store that celebrates a slower pace of living, and i adore the way they style, photograph and share their beautiful collections. these pretty pictures tell a story of an indoor picnic and show a set of brand new handmade ceramic bowls in various sizes and two beautiful, neutral glazes. such a special way to share how their homewares might look in our own homes, and i love their slow life philosophy: “Slower living is about taking time to do things with care and intention. It’s a recognition of the importance that time and attention play in enabling us to savour the small moments that give everyday life meaning and value. We like to think that if we use our ideals to shape our homes, our homes will, in turn, shape the life that unfolds within them.” be sure to check out all the beautiful objects available at ingredients ldn, and visit their journal, too — i think you’ll love it all as much as i do.

i discovered this week’s very instagram worthy feed through remodelista, when they shared the makeover of his stunning victorian home in Stoke Newington, london. i was instantly smitten with paul west’s beautiful home and had a good feeling his instagram feed — @consideredthings’ would be equally as lovely. quite right i was, and as you see it’s chock full of inspiring decor. a perfectly perfect vintage-modern makeover to his london flat is reflected in many of his photos, and should you be on the hunt, his beautifully restored home happens to actually up for sale. i can’t wait to follow his next design endeavor on instagram!

hi guys,

i’m so sorry no posts today, but a dear friend of mine is in the hospital and i needed to be there with her yesterday, so sadly i had no time to put together my friday posts. but sometimes people are the priority and you have to follow your heart. so rather than just slap any old post up, i’m taking a personal day. but, i’ll see you back here on monday. enjoy your weekend and hold those near and dear to you close.

xo, victoria
